Free Cocktail Event Tonight (Which Means Free Booze, So Pay Attention)

MixMixWhatever plans you had, cancel them. Because if you like alcohol and hate spending money, we have the perfect event for you.

Tonight, from 5pm-7pm on the lower level of the Shops At Comcast (1701 JFK Blvd), there’s going to be a Mixology Mixer–which basically means a competition-slash-cocktail-demonstration which will have some of the best bartenders in the city putting together spring cocktails which you, as a value-conscious cocktail enthusiast, will then judge. You get to vote for your favorite (via social media so, you know, it’s all modern-y), and the best bartender wins… I dunno. Bragging rights or whatever.

The important takeaway here is that there are going to be cocktails, that the event is open to the public, and that it’s free.




Wait, did you say free cocktails?

Aldine Debuts New Menu Format

When I heard that Aldine was changing its menu format, I thought maybe that meant the menu would no longer feature stupid colons in between ingredients (like sorry but,”sugar snap peas : pickled chili : smoked almond milk : rhubarb,” just does not look right). But alas, that was too much to hope for. Instead, Aldine is abandoning its unique tasting menu, which was divided into either the “omnivore” or “herbivore” menu, in favor of a more traditional format.

Chef and owner George Sabatino’s new menu is divided into first, second and third courses. First courses are either served cool or room temperature, second courses are slightly larger and served warm, and third courses are really the bigger main courses.

The Gastronaut: It Gets Better

MO-gastronaut-032015-400-kagan-mcleodI was at Aldine for dinner on opening night, and it was awful.

Of all the dishes set before me, I only found two of them appetizing enough to finish, and with another one, I had to pull the old Oh look, some of it fell on the floor trick just to make it appear as though I’d taken more than one bite.

But it’s okay. Don’t worry. Aldine got better.




I ate at Sbraga years ago, shortly after it opened. It was one of the most talked-about restaurants in the city, but not all the talk was good. And, frankly, neither was dinner. It was gimmicky, too clever, muddled in a way that I think was supposed to feel casual and fun but didn’t.

But Sbraga got better, too. Read more »
